Maybe next year

Maybe next year I will have worked my miles up to where I could finish a marathon.

Maybe next year I’ll have a training partner to share the moment with.

Maybe next year there will be someone special waiting at the end.

Maybe next year, even if I’m not ready to run it, I’ll have it together enough to volunteer to help.

Maybe next year it won’t be pouring down rain during the Portland Marathon.

Maybe next year.

Good luck to all the participants in today’s marathon, though!
